Carl Stamitz, one of the great musicians to emerge from the Mannheim school, is well known for a wide variety of compositions from concerti to chamber works. This gorgeous viola concerto, long a standard learning tool in the world's great conservatories, exhibits a deep and beautiful musical quality that has made this a standard among viola works with orchestra; and is finally available in an MMO play-along with the brilliant ensemble Les Orpheistes Chamber Orchestra of Vienna. The viola part sparkles and provides a rich training ground on which to finely home your skills, with the advantage of a full, lush orchestra at your side! You will love this marvelous piece, which represents Stamitz's bridging of the Baroque and Classical eras. Includes slow-tempo practice accompaniments of the faster outer movements.
